jerry saltz will analyze the bush brush. >>> we begin tonight with two men on opposite sides of gun safety reform. both claiming they represent the will of the people. new york city mayor michael bloomberg expressed confidence on "meet the press" that meaningful reform is on the horizon. >> i am cautiously optimistic. i think, when you have an issue where 90% of the public, 80% of nra members, even, say that they think we should have reasonable checks before people are allowed to buy guns, they all support the second amendment, as i do. but there are an awful lot of people that think that this is one of the great issues of our times. we have to stop -- >> yet nra executive vice president, wayne lapierre, is convinced that his organization is looking out for america's best interests, while bravely fighting off a challenge from the nanny state and its nanny mayor. >> he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restau
accepting of what the bush administration was claiming. so a good example would be, and not everybody is as discerning as you are, a good example, front page story in "the washington post," use that as an example, could be anybody else. today president bush said saddam hughes and is working with al qaeda. he is here, this is the story, and they quote an unnamed analyst because they can't speak openly, who would say we have no evidence to back this up. >> and i would seize on that. >> you would seize on it, put on a show if you have a show at the time. but the general thrust of the matter is you worked in congress, you know that a lot of congressmen and senators don't get past the headlines, we should take what bush says with more weight. the thrust of the story should have been president bush said something, contradicted by his own government and that should have been the lead, the fact he was saying something that wasn't proven. again and again and again. colin powell, that speech he gave february 5th, 2003, everyone remembers that, you know -- >> swayed a lot of people. >> swayed a
retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't just be personal about the decision makers. it has to be about telling the story honestly about what happened so that they, like nixon, don't get away with it in the long run the way they got away with it in the short run, so we tell the story correctly and honestly, so it's not dismissed as a conspiracy theory by generations hence by americans who can't believe something this evil would happen in our country. it did. we need to teach it that way and learn it that way if we want to have any hope of it not happening again. in american politics there were plenty of democrats who went with the iraq war ten years ago, who believed it, and made it more convincing by virtue of their democratic endorsement. on the democratic side that at least as since become a source of shame. it's a strike against you in democratic politics. it's part of the reason we have a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary
back to george h.w. bush and jim baker had a very tense relationship with former israeli prime minister shamir over settlements and loan guarantees, so the tension is real but not unprecedented, but you can manage it because of deep cooperation that the two countries have on a variety of issues to both. >> richard wolf, at the time there were people in israel saying what joe klein was saying. >> right. >> it was very controversial thing that bb netanyahu was doing, given that he worked literally in the same office with mitt romney in boston years ago, there was just plenty of suspicion around the whole thing. when president obama arrives there today, i assume there's going to be, there was absolutely none of that from president obama, seemed like all the burden was on netanyahu today to try to make up for what he had done during the campaign. >> right. let's be clear. this is more awkward situation for the israeli prime minister than it is for the american president. the israeli prime minister is the guy that screwed up. and by the way, there are other examples where actually the bush a
down the field. i'm not going make it. i'm a detroit lion. >> especially since we have reggie bush now. we're going to be in good shape. >> yes, that's what we always say. it is always going to be better. but i think seriously though, that the reason that in the past, with columbine, aurora, virginia tech, people forget about it after a few weeks and we move on to whatever else. people are not moving on. they are not moving on after newtown. and i think the reason is, and i can tell by the mail i get, there are too many parent who everyday drive their kids to school, and they open the door and this is what -- i mean, i've got this, more than a dozen times from mothers writing me and saying, i now when they open the door and i see them walk down the sidewalk into the school, i am sick that i have to feel like, is that last time i'm going to see my child. >> yeah. >> and because of that, because sense school went back into session after newtown, since january, millions of moms and dads have been dropping their kids off at school everyday and in the backs of their mind, they know where th

. bush would not meet with arafat in the white house because he knew how that devastated friends and encouraged our enemies. you remember even in the gulags in the soviet union when reagan said evil empire about soviet union, they applauded. it gave them strength. it helped them push forward. this president doesn't get it. he was in the gulag and when they found out a president used those two words, it made incredible encouragement. >> sean: same speech about alexander s., and ambassador bolton, good to see you. king of jordan said we're making a big mistake by supporting the muslim brotherhood. before i ask you a question. i want to take it back to barack obama's apology tour and ask you if this was effective. let's roll that tape. >> america like every other nation has made mistakes and has it's flaws. in america there is a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times when america has shown arrogance and been dismissive even derisive. 9/11 was

. this is where america is. i think what jeb bush, the clip you showed of jeb bush, shows what the dramatic problem is for the republican party. they can't be a party of intolerance when it comes to gay marriage, when it comes to immigration, when it comes to whether you believe in climate change or not. >> well, let me ask you both this quickly. my theory in some ways, it's sort of like gun control was in the '90s for democrats, which is there is -- there are plenty of people in the base of the democratic party who still believe gun control, but the leaders of the party did not talk aggressively about it. so there's going to be a part of the republican base in this december nbc "wall street journal" poll. 27% of republicans broadly favor it. so i don't want to oversell it. 27% favor same-sex marriage. there is going to be a part of your party, alex, that doesn't -- does not want to change principles. should your leadership, people running for president, should they, a., say, look, i support same-sex marriage. fact you can disagree. or should they not talk as much about it? >> i think i per
with george bush's head on the spike. >> i think people have too much time on their hands. could we start with the markets? are you kidding me? >> there is george bush. >> what is going on here? alex! put that down! >> they had to apologize for that. >> do you want people to watch this show? seriously. stupid. >> that's not juiceesus, it's s. people were into that in the bar. >> i'm going to move on. >> they were the only ones like in high school cheering for the devil. >> i'm going to try to move on and save you all from yourself. we begin with the markets. big repercussions this morning to a controversial plan by european leaders to partially fund a bailout of cyprus. today, cyprus parliament will hold an emergency vote to review the terms of a rescue package that targets individual savings accounts in exchange for billions of dollars of emergency crash and creditors impose onetime tax of 3% on all bank deposits under $130,000. >> going deep here. >> the tax could be closer to 10% on people who have over $640,000 in the bank. that's according to the "the wall street journal" this mornin
years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to the time when you were serving? >> i served in south central baghdad. it was a sunni and shia neighborhood. >> just the case today, according to what we understand now. >> exactly. and i'm still haunted by the fact that mean the of the guys i served with never made it home. to know that folks who are responsible have never been held accountable. whether that's public perception or otherwise is pretty disheartening. >> who needs to be held accountable? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits,
not supported candidate for president since bush the first time, is a conservative voice for those certain kind of conservatism. and was almost alone in advocacy of gay marriage at the beginning. and look at what has happened. it's absolutely extraordinary. >> and chad, i want to bring you back in here. we're going to be looking ahead to d.o.m.a. and prop 8 and the supreme court is going to be hearing arguments on those cases. some people have said the best thing for the republican party would be four the court to strike down both of those provisions so they don't exactly have to litigate or plant a flag on their opinion regarding gay marriage any more. it's settled law of the land and everybody can forget about this being a divisive issue and move along. what do you make of that? >> well look, there's no question that congress, that passed d.o.m.a., certainly has a responsibility as many there have tried. to repeal d.o.m.a. d.o.m.a. is before the supreme court next week, as is proposition 8, the marriage ban in cal cam. we'll see what the court does on those two. i'm opt michtic on both. at th
this week. it was a parade of former bush administration officials to say not only did they personally do nothing wrong but the iraq war turned out great, the right decision to liberate those people and how dare we try to second-guess them all these years later. i did not expect such bald revisionist history. and it makes me very happy we have decided to re-air our documentary on what they did wrong on the selling of that war tomorrow night. even though it has been ten years since the war was sold to the american public, the folks who did the selling, you know what, they did it all on tape, and the tape still exists. and now the people involved in those decisions are coming forward to talk about it, to say it didn't happen at all the way it really did. hubris airs 9:00 p.m. eastern tomorrow night, followed directly after by talking hubris, hosted by chris hayes. if you saw it the first time, check it out again. certainly check out the chris hayes' special after. now it's time for the last word with lawrence o'donnell. have a great night. >>> history was made in israel today, by the presid

that an insurgency would rise. president bush had the courage to change that strategy in the face of a failure that we were facing. in less than two years, that success was turnaround turned around in the sense that it was 90% reduction in violence, which was very significant for achievement. at the end of the day, the major frustration we are dealing with it in 2009, the obama administration came in and changed the policy. they disengaged this and kept it at distance, and we found ourselves at the end of 2011. unlike what we have done in germany and japan and india where we kept things in place to help strengthen and secure government, and that did not take place. jon: president obama has often mentioned in speeches that was under his administration that the war in iraq ended. >> i think that he was saying it was the correct decision. what happened after the overthrow, obviously it didn't turn out the way that we expected. i think in part, it is due to a poor military strategy. but it was also an incorrect political strategy on our part. i think that we should have tried to put authority into

were during the clinton years and once leaning over to the bush years and then they squandered that balance. so the reason we do that is our focus is on jobs, craig. our focus is on meeting our commitments to seniors. we will not balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education or on the backs of our commitments to seniors. whether it is under medicare or medicaid. what we do is immediately begin to reduce the deficit so they're growing much slower than the economy. which is the important measure. and then we gradually get the balance in the year round 2040. which by the way is the same year that the republican balance last year, the budget last year came into balance before they changed their priority. their priority now is balance at all costs. and our approach is focus on jobs in the economy and get the deficit down in a smart way. >> let's talk about the sequester for just a moment. what's the likelihood at this point that the sequester stays in place for the rest of the year? the fiscal year? >> well, it would be a big mistake for it to stay in place. that's why we p
they announced that the people who felt that rove represented the failures of the bush years and so on, that was a red flag and you are seeing the reaction to it. >> bill: okay. but having talked to karl rove many, many times on this program, i can tell you that he is a guy who doesn't want a conservative litmus test to limit some candidates who may be more moderate and appeal to a wider circle. he doesn't want that kind of party where i think sarah palin does want it i think republicans are are going to have to come to grips with that. >> well, they have to decide in some cases whether they're willing to settle for a candidate who has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees
adviser in the bush 43 administration, cre currently on the advisory committee and former cia officer, bob bear. this video we just showed from the assad regime, shown on syrian state television. want to show it again. it's supposedly a victim suffering from a chemical weapons attack. no one shows any physical signs of injury, no con vumgss, no vomiting. three experts say that judging from what they see here, this doesn't seem like a chemical weapons attack. knowing what you know about these type of agents and their effect on humans, do you agree? >> you know, it's difficult to tell without examining the patients. and you need sophisticated equipment to do that. a lot of the symptoms you're seeing in these patients could be caused by insecticide, for instance. any organo phosphate which saron is, but the fact that so few people have died or if any have died tells me that this probably wasn't a sar ron attack but we can't rule out some sort of diluted vehicle. >> the regime is saying it's the rebels using chemicals. if it was something like a diluted chemical, dispersal agent or something,
. in foreign policies, the one thing i learned working with george herbert walker bush is it's one thing for people to trust america and have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. people do not trust president obama and they are not sure that america will be there on national security. >> sean: listen, i'll be honest, i don't trust him. he's so dishonest in the way he plays politics, he's he a demagogue, he lies with abandon and the media couldn't call him out on it. i don't trust him, i don't believe what he says. i think he's phony. >> and picky, picky, picky. >> sean: i know. happy wednesday back at you. >> you're right, nobody trusts this man. >> sean: i don't trust him. i mean, if i'm bb, no way would i trust him. you go through the -- you go through whatever the motions you have to go through. it would be better if he had a strong ally, especially if they're going to have to take out iran's nukes within a year. they need a team, if not, israel will have to go alone sadly. >> the president ha
the bush years when democrats blocked a landful of very conservative judicial nominees. in some respects, this might be payback. what could obama do? he can try another couple of judicial nominations. the bottom line is he needs to clear these judicial nominations with at least a handful of republicans. otherwise if they're too liberal, they will get filibustered. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, a huge week ahead for gay rights as the supremes take up two gay marriage cases. people have been camping out in the rain and sleet just to get inside. but pete williams always has the inside scoop. he will get us up to speed as "the cycle" rolls on. try e-mail marketing from constantcontact. it's the fastest, easiest way to create great-looking custom e-mails that bring customers through your door. sign up for your free trial today at constantcontact.com/try. otherworldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the grou
that will go up against democrat elizabeth colbert bush, the sister of comedy central's stephen colbert. >> teddy turner's son finished fourth in a gop field of 16. he joins us from mt. pleasant, south carolina. you must be disappointed. an 8% showing, fourth. mark sanford seeming to, i don't know, recover some of his lost credibility with the people of south carolina. what's your take? >> well, you know, we ran a great race. we started at zero, we built our way up. you know, we had a couple logs thrown in our way. you know, some things that came out against us, but body a great race. it was a lot of fun. we had a great team. you've got to start somewhere. for the political game i'm a youngster. >> are you going to do this again? is this just a starting point for you? >> well, there's so much work left to be done. there's so many issues that we're not even touching on, especially our youth and their loss of the american dream. we've got some problems out there that folks aren't even addressing, and you know what, now that i've been in this game, it's really just -- i want to be here to
. he was for the iraq war until he was against it, until bush became president. >> yeah. >> so as long as we have got a democrat in there, i think good people of syria can depend on carl levin to be with them. >> it's interesting he has appeared with senator mccain who is a very vocal advocate of more strength being thrown toward the rebels of syria including eluding to putting ground troops into syria and now levin and mccain combined. >> the drum beat is growing louder. this report of a chemical weapons attack seems to be something we should step back and let the investigators investigate it. >> we would have been there a long time but the past decade of war, 70,000 dead in syria. we would have gotten together with the international community. we would have figured out a way to stop the killing. >> some people would consider that a game-changer. >> yeah, 70,000? >> that's what i'm saying. you know, not so long ago, we were talking about 20,000 dead there. now up to 70,000 dead. we went in to bosnia and kosovo for a lot more than 70,000 dead. >> preiraq war and goes to show you how mu
. former adviser to president george w. bush, dan senor. and the reverend al sharpton. >> looking sharp. >> he is double breasted today. boy, he looks good. >> almost double overload. >> wet to that in a second. down in washington, kelly o'donnell. how was the commute coming in this morning? >> it was nasty and truth be told, i have my snow boots on under the desk. >> are they uggs? >> they are. i would kick up my leg but that might be too much for the show. >> we have a lot of to talk about. the basketball team florida gulf coast university. a great story there, the coach there, andy enfield. the first 15 seed to advance to the sweet 16 and playing without fear against georgetown and last night against san diego state and they look like the favorite in both of those games the way they played. >> and enfield is clearly a coach who is a good coach but he doesn't take himself too seriously. the team is playing very light. under very little pressure. they were never expected to be there. he is not overcoaching them and an engaging guy. apparently from everything you read, he has a story fo
of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large number of people and causes people to want to listen to her and be attracted to her. karl rove is right. he does not have that appeal. and worse yet is that he has a lot of egg on his face from 2012 including the meltdown in ohio. so if you go past the last victories, last thing we saw from karl rove was a total melt dunn. >> he's right, it's sarah palin. karl rove seems to know his place and he knows it's beh
correct what many are calling an injustice made when the first george bush was president. a man convicted of murder of a rabbi in 1991 could go free. the brooklyn d.a. will ask the judge to throw out the case of david ranta, accused of killing a rabbi, reported survivor of auschwitz and champion of jews in brooklyn. a robber gunned the rabbi down and got away in his car. detectives say they had ranta's confession, eyewitnesss, and more. later, witnesses said they lied, one even saying a detective told him to i.d. ranta. the detective talked to mary snow. >> ma'am, i didn't do anything wrong. i stand by my investigation, and i don't know what else to tell you. >> reporter: what is your reaction to the fact that this conviction is being likely being overturned? >> well, i really can't talk about that. all i have to say is they let mr. ranta out today, they are going to let him out, it's not a personal thing. i did what i had to do, and i wish him health. >> let's get some legal advice now, cnn legal analyst sunny hostin. the prosecutor asking for david ranta to be set free. that shows just
, marco rubio is in favor of it, jeb bush is in favor of it, governor christie is in favor of it. practically every 2016 potential nominee being mentioned in the republican party, paul ryan, you name it, is in favor of immigration reform. so i don't know where you turn to if you're against it. >> i've got to wrap this up and i'm sure we all three will make an appearance on the rush limbaugh show later today. ana navarro, ross douthat, thanks so much for joining us. >>> burning bridges with your bosses. jay leno scorches nbc amid talks he's on the way out. coming up, some of the comedian's toughest punch lines. this is so sick! i can't believe your mom let you take her car out. this is awesome! whoooo! you're crazy. go faster! go faster! go faster! go faster! no! stop...stop...
